I like to eat Mama burgers, if you know what I mean and I think you do.

I'd really rather not have to read what stupid people have to say about other stupid people. But, then, that's what I get for clicking on National Potato.

The complaint - filed last month by a man posing as a radical lesbian feminist - demanded $50,000 from the restaurant chain, alleging that its trademark Papa, Mama, Grandpa and Teen burgers were "an attack on my womyn identity."

"The level of humiliation and degradation I felt exceeded that which I felt when I was raped."

You're...you're not doing any favors to the "community" when you do shiat like this, you know. You're already laughed at and not taken seriously. Why try the attention whore route? This is precisely why heads get shaken and facepalms happen when you're around. Sort of like watching a big hairy dude in a pink tutu flouncing in a parade...not generally going to help your cause. But, it's your life. Enjoy your results.

Didn't read the article, but the thread didn't give me any clues. Lol.

I knew someone in Canada who would have done this in all seriousness, though. She complained to the dean because I dared to say I enjoyed blowjobs in the middle of a Women's Studies class in university.

The thing is, the complaint was a false-flag op.  It was filed by a straight man pretending to be the right-wing stereotype of an androphobe, solely to try to make the LGBTQ community look bad.

It was a dude pretending to be a woman. At the very least it was a troll, and it's entirely possible it was filed by someone who shares your sentiment to try and discredit a cause perceived as left wing.

So take a chill pill, Mr. Confirmation Bias.

As I always think when some jackass who thinks he's being clever claims to be a "lesbian", you won't be needing your testacles any more, then.

Ladies of the Isle of Lesbos, you have my permission to make any "conversions" you see fit to that guy. I know you don't need my permission to do anything--I just thought you'd be glad to know that somebody out there feels your pain and aggro.
 
2013-07-27 03:03:21 PM
While conceding that his complaint was "ridiculous," the complainant said it was no more ridiculous than a recent human rights tribunal ruling in B.C. that saw acomedian Guy Earle fined $15,000   after directing a barrage of slurs toward a lesbian couple at a restaurant in 2011.

Uh... yeah... glad I live in a country that protects your right to free speech.

A&W does make a tasty burger. I don't care for their onion rings as much though. Too big and bland and the breading is too bread-y, not batter-y enough.

But if jackass male pretenders keep attacking the chain, gang, you may be able to get your onion rings with lots of battery

Any lesbians need a man to hold your coats while you rough That Guy up a bit?

Shut the fark up and read the article, you rape-encouraging dickbag.
 
2013-07-27 03:08:53 PM
From the commission paperwork, quoting the guy's letter:

"A&W should be required to develop and implement a modern burger family which is more inclusive and empowers members of the LGBTQ2S community. Science has shown that up to five adults can take part in the procreation process. Therefore, the notions of manhood, and more importantly, fatherhood, should be completely abolished. Fatherhood is a concept which perpetuates the oppression of womyn and serves to legitimize our patriarchal, misogynistic society. Any references to males should be omitted, as at present, all forms of relationships between womyn and men are basic forms of institutional rape."

It's a pretty well written screed, and the excerpts are an faintly amusing parody. Wish I could find the whole of the guy's letter on the Internet, not just the portions quoted in the commission's report.

/to the google!

Could be.  If so, I hope that Canada has a law that penalizes people who file frivolous lawsuits.  Unfortunately, even a good, hefty fine would probably not teach this guy anything.

Head of A&W Legal:  Guys, we're being sued.  They just dropped off the papers.
A Lawyer: Really.  What for?  Did somebody slip on a wet floor or something?
Head: Nope.  Somebody is offended because we name our burgers Mama, Papa, Grampa and Teen.
Lawyer: ....Um... huh?
Head: Really, that's their beef.
Lawyer: C'mon, what's the lawsuit really about?  Sexual harassment?  Did somebody trip a crippled kid?
Head: No... Mama, Papa, Grampa and Teen.  That's it.
Lawyer:  Are you farking kidding me?  I turned down a job at SPLC for this turd gig?  Jesus Keerist!!!
